Photos: Badass Aurora cops during the '80s

Update below: Facebook is the perfect place to share old photos -- even for the Aurora Police Department.

Earlier today, the APD shared a slew of amazing, mostly black-and-white images from the 1980s featuring lots of bushy hair, porn-star mustaches, antiquated equipment, big guns and badass attitudes. They look like outtakes from a vintage Sidney Lumet cop-drama we wish we could be watching right now. Check out the collection below, complete with captions from the APD.

Update: Shortly after the publication of this post, we heard from the son of Aurora Police veteran Jim Perrott, who shared a great photo of his dad with a perp circa the early 1980s.

And now, here's the rest of the gallery.... Continue for more of our badass Aurora cops during the '80s gallery. Continue for more of our badass Aurora cops during the '80s gallery.
